The Class from the Black Lagoon - Mike Thaler

The entire Black Lagoon series is a series that I adored growing up, and is still a fan favorite of students of everywhere. This book is about a teacher that pictures the worst of the worst class for the year, and her imagination runs wild. Always at the end of any of these series, their imagination was way worse than the real outcome. It is a great lesson to teach students to be on their best behavior. I think a great lesson would be to use this as a writing prompt of what makes a great class and a terrible class. Great also for class discussion. 

Grade Level - K-2nd

Lexile Level - 480L

Baking Class by Deanna F. Cook
Baking Class: 50 Fun Recipes Kids Will Love to Bake! - Deanna F. Cook

As a seasoned veteran in the kitchen Some of this book was a bit below me so to speak. It is written more on the kid level. BUT I did find some amazing recipes and even learned a thing or to. No matter how much you think you know about something there is always room for improvement and sometimes we just need to go back to the basics if for nothing else then  refresher course. If you are a beginner this book is great. It teaches tips and tricks as well as a whole bunch of wonderful recipes.. I lie how the recipes were broken down into categories. There are some no bake recipes included as well. This book is a great addition to any kitchen. I truly believe in letting kids help in the kitchen,  I even let my 2 year old help me. How else are they going to learn to feed themselves if we do not take the time to show them how to do it? This book like I said is geared more towards kids and beginners. Honestly it will help take some of the stress off of you as a parent/teacher to start with books like this because it will let you remember the whole time you are dealing with children and beginners. 

 

 

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.

A new year, a new class – more nastiness and treachery!
Deadly Class Volume 5 - Rick Remender

 

 

I'm not sure why I persist with this series: there's a lot of violence and bloodshed, the artwork is a little too simplistic for me and the plotlines are “silly” at times.

 

A freshman year starts at the school for killers and the volume concentrates on a small group of these as well as on Saya and her development. There's also a return to Maria's fate towards the end.

 

If you enjoyed the four [previous volumes, you'll undoubtedly like this one too.

The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

The Giving Tree is a classic book by Shel Silverstein about a little boy who befriends a tree. The tree loved him so much that she was willing to give him anything he wanted. As the little boy is young and still growing up, he spends so much time with the tree. However, the older he gets, the less time he spends with it. Eventually, the only time that he visits the tree is because he needs something. The tree is always willing to give him whatever it is he needs. This book tells the powerful story of how people tend to take things for granted. We ask and ask for things in the world to try and make ourselves happy, but in the end, it is the simple things that matter the most. This book’s Lexile reading level is 530L, and I believe it can be read in any elementary school grades. Different age groups will develop a different understanding for the book, which is always interesting to listen to. In my classroom, I would want us to create our own giving tree. The students will each be given at least two leaves. On one leaf, they must write the characteristics of a giving person. On the other leaf, they can write the name of a person in their life that has always been giving to them. They must also write at least one example of how that person is giving. These leaves will be used to decorate our class tree, and it will serve as a reminder for my class to always be a giving person.

The Three Ninja Pigs - Corey Rosen Schwartz,Dan Santat

The Three Ninja Pigs is a primary example of a fractured fairytale, and it is written by Corey Rosen Schwartz. If your students really enjoy the story of the three little pigs, they are sure to love this modern version with ninja pigs! The three pigs attend a Dojo where they train to fight the big bad wolf. In the end, it is the ultimate showdown between the ninja pigs with their quick moves and the wolf with his stealth. The book’s Lexile reading level is AD630L, but I believe children of all ages from kindergarten to fifth grade would enjoy this modern spin. This would be a book that I would use to discuss fractured fairytales in the classroom. I would first read students the original version of The Three Little Pigs, and then I would read this book along with a couple of others for students to see the difference. I would then organize the students into their own book groups to do a study on fractured fairytales. I would assign each group an original tale, such as Little Red Riding Hood or Cinderella, and then give them fractured fairytale books to read and compare with. We could then organize a class book fair, where students in their group would present their original story and show the class examples of fractured fairytales that go along with the original.
